A sultry and sensational performance from Jeanne Balibar fuels Mathieu Amalric’s experimental music biopic. When the French actor Mathieu Amalric occasionally turns his attentions to working behind the camera, he accepts nothing less than a total, top-down reinvention. He clearly has no interest in making the same movie twice, and that goes for expanding on motifs or ideas from earlier works, or even sustaining a performance or shooting style from one film to the next.
